Users that made the unfortunate decision to download the latest Fallout: New Vegas update found out the hard way that it makes Obsidian and Bethesda's action-RPG unplayable. Now Bethesda is telling the community that it is working hard on a fix and urging those that have not downloaded already to avoid it. According to a post on the Bethesda's official blog, Obsidian has figured out what caused the problem and plans to put out a new patch soon. From the blog:
"Regarding the Xbox 360 update, we've discovered a solution to the issue that's causing problems with game saves," reads the blog post. "We'll be hosting a replacement update on Xbox Live as soon as humanly possible.
"If you haven't grabbed the New Vegas update on 360 today, we recommend you decline the update until the new one is live. We'll be sure to let you know when it's up."
Bethesda's advice is sound, though it always sucks as a developer when you have to go hat-in-hand and explain your blunders. Still, Bethesda gets points for being both honest and forthcoming with its community.
